Abstract
From metropolitan areas to tiny villages, there is a wide variety of organizers of cultural, business, entertainment, and social events. These organizers publish such information to an equally wide variety of sources. Every source of published events uses its own document structure and provides dierent sets of information. This raises signicant customization issues. This paper explores the possibilities of extracting future events from a wide range of web sources, to determine if the document structure and content can be exploited for time-ecient hyperlocal event scraping. We report on two experimental knowledge-driven, pattern-based programs that scrape events from web pages using both their content and structure.
